1. O happy souls, who prayWhere God appoints to hear!O happy Saints, who payTheir constant service there!We’ll praise Him still,And happy weWho love the wayTo Zion’s hill.
2. No burning heat by day,Nor blast of evening air,Shall take our health away,If God be with us there.He is our sun,And He our shadeTo guard our headBy night or noon.
3. God is the only Lord,Our shield and our defense;With gifts His hands are stored,We draw our blessings thence.He will bestowOn Jacob’s racePeculiar graceAnd glory too.
